01Raw footage Archive: Umlazi Youth




Umlazi township is one of the most populated urban African settlements in Durban.it has a rich history predating the arrival of Colonial forces in the territory now called Natal. It is said to have gotten its name from the king of the Zulu state: Shaka. Whilst most histories ans discriptions of this area have been done by outsiders talking to distant audiences, the Durbansing research has helped to uncover and re-center memories held by thothose who call uMlazi; Home.

This is part of the Raw Footage compiled by Umlazi youth organisation: http://youthumlazi.wordpress.com/

, in the South Durban, covering many sections and household profiles.

Dreams for future of area/self, popular saying/proverb, favorite song and any other comments (see D/s questionnaire on www.durbansings.wordpress.com )â¦
Mix languages mainly Zulu/English.
